Croatians Among Serbia’s Top 10 Tourists

CroatiaCroatian tourists are among the top 10 nations to visit Serbia…

Last year 13% more Croats visited Serbia than they did in 2012, and there has been a 22% rise already in the first 7 months of this year. The numbers are not huge, with around 53,000 Croatian tourists visiting, and 100,000 overnight stays, but enough to put Croats among the top 10 nations, writes daily Vecernji list.

The number of Croatians who have made the trip across the border reached 40,000 after the first 7 months of this year, whilst the number of Slovenians has declined. Young Croatians are visiting Serbia, and particularly Belgrade for a number of reasons. The number of bachelor and hens nights celebrated their has risen in the past 12 months.

“My wedding is around the corner, and recently two of my good friends spent the weekend in Belgrade. They had a great time and it made me think to organise my hens night there.” said a 29-year-old Zagreb resident who is about to set off to the Serbian capital with 5 friends, adding that the relatively cheap travel costs, and accommodation and entertainment prices makes it an attractive destination.

“The young, unburdened generation want to learn about the neighboring countries, and Belgrade is known even outside the region as a mecca for nightlife. Most visitors generally do not use agencies. We know there is a trend now of stag and hens nights in Serbia,”said Nikolina Frklić from Atlas tours.

Belgrade is also a popular New Year’s Eve and skiing destination for tourists from the region.
